Waiting Children

Caring for Kids, Inc. is thrilled to announce its ongoing partnership with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption!  Dave Thomas, founder of the fast food empire Wendy’s and an adopted child himself, devoted his life to improving the lives of America’s most vulnerable children.

Since its creation, the foundation has helped more than 5,200 children find their way out of foster care and into their forever families.  Thomas believed every child deserves to live in a safe, loving, permanent family- and at Caring for Kids we couldn’t agree more!

Sadly, often times there aren’t enough resources or time devoted to finding forever families for children placed in permanent custody of the Public Child Welfare System.  The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has awarded Caring for Kids a grant creating a presence of 10 Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters on our staff.

Our agency is excited to have these experienced adoption professionals, whose track record is undeniable, work to find homes for waiting children right here in Northeast Ohio.  Based on a 2011 Washington, D.C.-based Child Trend report, children represented by these recruiters are “1.7 times more likely to be adopted,” while the program’s impact is strongest among those who “have traditionally waited the longest” or “are the least likely to achieve adoption- with adoptions three times more likely (Ellis, 2011, p. 2).”
